The drive from Glen Coe up the valley had the most exceptional dramatic scenery with steep sided valley walls. There several pullouts on the road for viewing the scenery and taking photos. If more time allowed, we would have liked to do some hiking. WOW! A real must see.

Although I've never had the pleasure of walking in Glencoe. I've driven through a number of times.completely gobsmacked every time I'm here with the scenery.I slow down to 50 mph on faster parts of road and 40 mph if no traffic behind me just so I can enjoy the drive even more.

No one prepares you for this magnificent sculpture by Mother Nature - for the waterfalls - for the colours - for the sense of foreboding and isolation. This is serious sightseeing. Stop the car as many times as possible and wander in a bit - you will have a yarn to tell at many dinner parties afterwards.

It's famous for the scene in 007 movie " Skyfell". The view is spectacular. Don't miss it when you travel through Scotland.

If you want to view the Scottish Highlands make certain you go to Glen Coe. No matter what the weather the views are spectacular and if you have any interest in photography you will have many opportunities to get "that particular photo". We were there in October on a wild, windy, rainy and overall blustery day yet had an amazing... More
